Gone With The Wind Museum

Yesterday, Dad was off from work, so he took Mom to the Gone With The Wind Museum in Cleburne, TX.   Mom has always liked the movie and thought it would be fun to visit this small museum.

 When you enter the building, you are in a very small room where you sign the guest book and pay the $7 admission fee.  You then enter through double doors that were created to look like Tara, the house that Scarlett loved so much.

Painting of Scarlett.

Worn by the actress who played Melanie.

Worn by the actress who played Bonnie Blue.

Chair was in the movie.  It is in the last scene where Rhett tells Scarlett he doesn't give a damn.

The folks liked the museum.  A person probably could spend hours looking at everything. 

Mom would like to visit the museum in Georgia some day.
